Metrology, Measurement and Precision Adjustment: The research for quality improvement necessarily goes through measuring techniques and control. The laser is more and more often used for these purposes. The ability to generate more and more small and precise spots makes it indispensable in all fields, from nanotechnology to the most impressive buildings.
Metrology, Measurement and Precision Adjustment
Biofotonic, Science and Research
Biophotonics, Science and Research: Biophotonics consist in developing applications for lasers in the field of pharmaceutical research, diagnostic and clinical care and even semi-automated diagnostic systems. The exceptional characteristics of the laser, widely used in various fields, are now placed at the service of the research becoming a new tool for the treatment and diagnosis as well as for research.
Composite, Paper, Rubber and Plastic
Composite, Paper, Rubber and Plastic: In these fields, lasers, with different configurations of optics, can be used in different types of applications such as: Marking the position of cutting machines, alignment coils, optical ruler for cutters, alignment rolls and packs for cutting, guidance systems for moving webs.
Automotive and Railways
Automotive and Railways: In automotive industry, lasers systems are principally used for quality control in the assembly, dimensional controls and positioning. In the railway industry, they are used for structural inspections of rolling stock as well as for scanning and network control (alignment and usury of rails and optical verification of operation of pantographs).
Wood: In the field of woodworking, the laser can be used in different types of applications: Reconcile of multi-blade saws rolls, alignment of the tables to display cutting edge, view of the cutting line of machines for panel, display the cutting line of wood splitters, circular and band saws, cutting line display of clippers and cutters for veneer, aiming systems for machining centers and CNC, thickness measurements, gluing control.
Quality Control: Given their speed and accuracy, by means of laser systems is possible to carry out precise and detailed inspections on the production and during the various processing steps and also on finished products. They can therefore be used for control purposes of the manufacturing process or as visual inspection on all pieces of the production. The degree of accuracy is very high and adjustable in relation to the needs. They are used in areas such as mechanics and metalworking, food processing, packaging, automation, biomedical, robotics and in many other sectors.
Robotics and Mechanics Constructions
Robotics and Mechanics Constructions: The use of lasers in industrial automation enables the detection and location of objects in a very precise way. The laser sensors are particularly suitable for the management of very small objects or shapes and color non-conventional and therefore not very visible to the photocells. In addition to industrial robotics combined with the potential of the laser it is now widely used, because of the characteristics of high precision, even in robotics surgery.
Medical: The accuracy of the positioning of the patient is a key requirement: applications such as CT (Computed Tomography), MRI, Radiotherapy, Orthopantomography, are safe and effective if this positioning is performed with pinpoint accuracy using laser. The time savings in the positioning of the patient also enables a more intensive use of the equipment.
Metal: In this area, the lasers are used on presses, benders, cutters, band saws for the exact positioning of the workpiece material.
Stone, Glass and Ceramic
Stone, Glass and Ceramic: The machining of these materials, requires a precise positioning and a careful check of the dimensions. Some examples for the use of laser technology are: Alignment of slabs of marble bridge saws or multi-blade saws, suction cup positioning or clamping devices, alignment of plates on table tops and workcenters, positioning plates on shelves for the adjustment of the board, positioning and marking of the cuts, holes or machine stitches. In machines CNC also for positioning suckers As for the glass industry, lasers are also used in applications such as: marking of the position of sanding machines and marking of the position of cutting machines or drilling machines.
Textile Industry (Dry Goods and Leather): In the field of fabrics and leathers, lasers are used in several applications, the main ones are: Positioning tissue at the entry of the machine, display the operating point or cutting machine, alignment for sewing pockets, marking the position of sewing machines, optical ruler for seam tracking, alignment for ironing, position display of buttons or buttonholes , visualization of the work point on the plotter and cutting machines, control holes in the tissues.
